Rooftop

{Photos by Alyssa; wearing ASOS leather skirt, Halston Heritage clutch, Kenneth Cole heels, River Island mint blouse}



On a blog, you can choose what to post and who you want to be. It's easy, as no one knows you in real life, except if you go to Mexico with them as a blind blogger date (Hi Danielle). I think that's why most people blog. It's fun like that. And there's nothing wrong using blog as a form of escape, as long as you differentiate the blog world from the reality and you stay true to your values.

So for this post, I'm going to share with you that I binge ate 3 chocolate chip cupcakes before these photos because I was really hungry and grabbed the most convenient thing on my counter top.

After the photos Alyssa and I grabbed a coffee and hung out. Then I went home, threw on my sweat pants and watched Game of Thrones.

I thought I'd share that, instead of: This is what I wore to a local fru fru cafe where Alyssa and I had over priced lattes and organic biscuits [while looking this fabulous obviously].

Both statements are true: one is very much fluffed while the other is what it is. And I'm a believer of stating what it is to be true. I can't control what others think but when I look at my past posts, I know exactly how I felt and what I believed in. And I think that's important in a personal lifestyle blog. Have a great weekend!

  5. You look beautiful, love that sheer top with this skirt. And I am all for sweatpants and tv on the couch. It's pretty much how I spend most of my nights. :)

  18. Totally agree with you! I hate reading blogs which make things out to be like some magical fairytale all the time... It's too sickly & fake. I much prefer authenticity, and that's why I enjoy reading yours because you just say things as they are, flaws & all. Love that skirt & the chiffon blouse is such a nice girly contrast too!

  19. Love the bag! And the outfit of course...chocolate chip cupcakes..when not? Lol. You know I am a bit late on the GOT wave but I am loving it...such a powerful series, one of the best nowdays. Have a super weekend.

  20. Except for our closest friends, people in real life probably don't know us as well as our blog friends. Although I tend to overshare in both arenas, maybe in different ways....and I'd like to see the sweats. :)

    Have a nice weekend Miss Wonderful!

  21. I love that top! And that is so true what you said. But I like that you pointed that out. It is a lot more interesting to hear the real side of things than fluffy clouds and rainbows everywhere haha

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hmmm, this got me thinking. I always thought bloggers just had a more interesting life than mine and went out doing stuff, and visiting places...and yeah, eating overpriced shit :D But I might have been wrong :D
    Hey, what did you think of Game of Throne's last episode? I think it was kind of disappointing.

  23. We could be anything on blog but still stay in the values, truee !!!
    Sexy and sweet :)

  24. What a coincidence, I binged on 3 chocolate chip cookies as well, haha! And you look wonderful! Love your skirt!

  26. You look so great and it's important to differentiate between your online self and your real self. I have this friend, who calls herself a professional blogger (even though she just reblogs stuff on tumblr) and she calls herself internet famous, but she fails to realize that that doesn't translate to real life.

  27. What a gorgeous rooftop location!
    Ha, and I love your honesty. Because truthfully, that's pretty much how my blogging goes. I throw on something "blog appropriate" for a post, hang out with friends somewhere, then go bakc home and chill in sweats.

  33. Absolutely love this look!! Hey, I hear the weather in Ottawa has been terrible lately. Toronto has been fluctuating between ridiculously hot and mad coldness. *sigh*

  34. We're all human! I love that you're telling us about your cupcake binge and sweatpants tv show watching session! You look amazing with the skirt and mint top! I'm so sad that river island is no longer in singapore!

  35. This was such an inspirational little post. You look fabulous. I am a bit jealous that the picture was taken after you binged on three cupcakes. I am totally for the sweat pants and watching Game of Thrones.
